its topic 3 i think, due to transcription factors. The lactose binds to a respressor so the gene can be activated and transcribed by RNA polymerase on the promotor region. The enzyme b-galactosidase breaks down lactose into galactose and glucose.
Wtf is lac operon

I'm curious what the exam poll will look like if we have one. I guess there will be a large proportion of 'not great'
